It's great finding out new ideas - like the chia seeds - I had no idea! Plus, your writing is honest and straightforward without being preachy or arrogant. Love it! Keep it coming!

My dear Kelsi,I love reading your blog, and how honest and selfless you are in your writing style. It has allowed me to stay in touch with you even though we do not see each other often. I love that you are raising chickens named for Golden Girls, and that you work as a Guardian ad litem. You are an inspiration to me on days when I don't want to get off the couch and want to wallow in self-pity. That all comes through on Our Simple Happy Life. I thank you for keeping us updated!KatiePS - I am a fan on FB, shared on FB, and tweeted!

My favorite thing is used to be seeing y'alls country life-- I am living in a dorm room and wishing for wide open spaces! Lately, your lifestyle change related stuff has been my favorite. I am on WeightWatchers myself, and any positive thoughts and yummy recipes are appreciated! :) Congratulations on your big milestone!
